Unrest w/ Q&A


Dir. Jennifer Brea | USA 2017 | 97 min | cert TBC
 
Twenty-eight year-old Jennifer Brea is working on her PhD at Harvard and months away from marrying the love of her life when she gets a mysterious fever that leaves her so ill she becomes  bedbound,  often  in excruciating pain, and looking for answers. Disbelieved by doctors and  determined  to  live,  she  turns  her  camera  on  herself  and her community, a hidden world of millions  confined  to  their  homes  and bedrooms by Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, also known as Chronic  Fatigue  Syndrome  Unrest  is,  at  its  core,  a  love  story.  How  Jen  and  her  new  husband forge  their relationship while dealing with her  mysterious illness is at once heartbreaking, inspiring and funny.

Following the screening, we will be joined by patients from the ME Clinic and Mel Terry, ME Occupational Therapist, for a Q&A .
